Every Patient Counts
Our patients are at the core of who we are.
Mr. Wilson transferred to a Resolute-managed rehabilitation unit in Bossier City, LA to receive continued care for complications from COVID-19. When he arrived, he was on a ventilator and required assistance for mobility. An occupational therapist on our Resolute team recognized that Mr. Wilson needed a spark to ignite his recovery. This team member helped Mr. Wilson shave his face so he could feel confident in his abilities. By the third week in our care, Mr. Wilson was weaned from the ventilator and walking without any assistance! After one month, Mr. Wilson returned home to his family! We’re inspired by Mr. Wilson’s desire to never give up, despite losing a loved one while recovering from COVID-19. Congratulations, Mr. Wilson!
Mr. Hartley transitioned to a Resolute-managed rehabilitation unit in Tucson, Arizona after chronic obstructive pulmonary disease led to pneumonia and respiratory failure. When Mr. Hartley arrived, he was on a ventilator, confused, and unable to participate in any mobility activities. Our Resolute team collaborated with our hospital physicians and clinical team members to develop a customized treatment plan to help Mr. Hartley regain his prior level of independence. Mr. Hartley remained dedicated to his treatment plan and worked hard to reach his goals. Upon discharge, Mr. Hartley was weaned from the ventilator and able to walk again! We’re so thankful to help Mr. Hartley return home to his family!
Mr. Melgar transitioned to a Resolute-managed rehabilitation unit in Houston, Texas to recover from COVID-19 complications that left him confused and with limited mobility. Upon evaluation, Mr. Melgar was on a tracheostomy collar, weak, and unable to speak. He required assistance for mobility, activities of daily living and needed a feeding tube to eat. Upon discharge to an inpatient rehabilitation facility, Mr. Melgar was able to walk 200 feet with a rolling walker and transfer with minimal assistance. Mr. Melgar progressed to set-up assistance for activities of daily living and enjoyed a soft diet with thin liquids. Alongside these improvements, Mr. Melgar was able to speak again! We were honored to hear Mr. Melgar’s voice and help him recover from COVID-19!
